As we are going through a horrible time on Earth, it is worthy to check what is going on in sky. In last one month or so, especially after eclipses, we have had almost everything in the world. Heavy Rains, Floods, Hurricanes, Shooting, Stampedes and what not? It seems some uncontrollable circumstances are creating a havoc here. I personally came to know about 2 accidents in which persons in their 20s lost their lives. So, we must check the planetary positions in sky to understand because as they say, as above so below.
Please read these two articles for better understanding of this article - Gandanta Point or Gandanta Degrees (http://astrosaxena.com/gpgd) and Eclipse Season (http://astrosaxena.com/eclipses).
So, let's try to understand what is going-on through following points -
After-effect of Eclipse - As I said in eclipse article, one of the most common effect after eclipse on human life is Earthquakes, Volcanoes, Floods and Cyclones, i.e. Natural Disasters, and we have seen plenty of these things after eclipse season in August.
Gandanta Point - As I said in Gandanta article, Gandanta is the final few degrees of water signs (Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces) and early few degrees of Fire Signs (Aries, Leo & Sagittarius). I also said, planets in these degrees in birth chart or transit bring the feeling of drowning, either emotional or physical.
Malefic Planets - We know that we are in after-eclipse time. All the negative events of life largely happen due to malefic planets like Rahu, Ketu, Saturn and Mars. Now, let's see what were there positions one month ago when things started going horrible.
- Rahu - At the time of eclipse, Rahu was in early few degrees of Leo and now it is in last few degrees of Cancer from 2nd week of Sep. It means Rahu is in gandanta position from about couple of months at least.
- Saturn - Saturn is also in last few degrees of Scorpio from couple of months. So, Saturn too is in gandanta degrees.
- Mars - Around Solar Eclipse on 21st Aug, Mars was in last few degrees of Cancer, its debilitation sign and then it moved into Leo where again it was in gandanta degrees for about a week or 10 days.
- Ketu - Ketu is although not in Gandanta Degrees but it is playing a huge role here which we will understand in few minutes.
Solar Eclipse - So, 1st trigger was Solar Eclipse on 21st August, while all these malefic planets remained in Gandanta Degrees, and we started facing heavy rains, floods and hurricane. A result so much akin to eclipse after-effect and gandanta.
Degrees of Malefic Planets - But then what caused accidents, shooting and stampedes. It is mutual aspects between Rahu-Saturn-Ketu-Mars from almost exact degrees.
- Rahu is at 29-30 degree of Cancer in last one month.
- Ketu is at 29-30 degree of Capricorn in last one month
- Saturn is at 28-29 degree of Scorpio (a sign of sudden events) in last one month.
- Mars is now in 20+ degrees of Leo from last 15 days or so.
Mutual Aspects - Now, let's see their aspects on each other -
- Rahu in Cancer aspects at Saturn in Scorpio through 5th house aspect.
- Saturn in Scorpio aspects at Ketu in Capricorn through 3rd house aspect.
- Saturn in Scorpio aspects at Mars in Leo through 10th house aspect.
- Mars in Leo aspects at Saturn in Scorpio through 4th house aspect.
- Last but not the least, if we take help of Quincunx (6th house/8th house) aspect of Western Astrology then Mars in Leo and Ketu in Capricorn are in 6th house/8th house aspect of each other. And for any event like accident, stampede or shooting, Mars-Ketu involvement is much needed as they together represent Bloodshed, Terrorist Activities and Surgeries. So, I will consider it.
As we can see that a huge planetary war is going on between all the malefic planets.
Future Transits - Now, time for any possible improvement.
- By October end, Rahu will leave Gandanta Degree. So, it will be 1st relief.
- But Rahu's sandhi aspect on Saturn, Saturn-Mars mutual aspects and Saturn's sandhi aspect on Ketu will be there.
- By November end, Mars-Saturn mutual aspect will end and Rahu-Ketu will be far away degree-wise from Saturn to cause a Sandhi Aspect.
Timeline for improvement - So, 1st of all we need to be very careful till the end of October. Please do take due care & precautions while travelling and all. Please avoid going to risky places. As I see, things may start coming back to normalcy after October and things may be back to complete normalcy only after November end.
Please do take care of yourself and everyone around you.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
